I caught a few minutes of Joe Rogan's podcast with Kevin Lee, and Lee made what I thought was a good point. Basically what he said was referees take a lot of flack when it comes to stopping fights, but it's the coaches who should know when there fighter is truly out of it. Whether it be in between rounds or mid fight, the coaches know there training habits and how they react in specific situations. Of course there is the competitive nature of pushing your fighter, but Lee also made the observation that Barbosa's coaches were making him panic even more with such a strict coaching style, and I believe him, Barbosa has taken a beating lately. Some of the old school mentality doesn't work, and coaches should accept when there fighter is done. I've never really seen the towel thrown in the UFC but I know the refs have too much pressure to make these decisions, while we can sit back and critique every aspect of it. I would say I'm of a more uninformed opinion though, what do you guys think? I'm curious also, is there examples of times coaches have thrown in the towel in the UFC?
